The objective is simple – build a robot, take over the world. Wait, we meant take over the competition.
Our goal is to complete a robot to compete in the Robogames Mech Warfare Competition, in which walking robots engage in a simulated battle in a model city. The robots have air-soft projectile launchers and sensor plates to detect hits. They are remotely controlled via a camera feed to simulate a first person perspective. This year the team will focus on improving the robot that was constructed last year. We competed with our quadruped robot in the Mech Warfare division of Robogames in April 2018.
2018 Team Picture
If we ever need to build giant walking combat machines, we'll be ready.
TEAM LEAD - MAVIS
During the matches, the pilot will remotely navigate the robot through a scaled-down cityscape and fight opponents by shooting airsoft bb's at target plates to reduce their HP. The pilot's vision is limited to an FPV camera mounted on the robot to emulate real life combat where the pilot will control the robot from the cockpit.
